it to a poll tax, they said this was a poll tax and would be voter suppression in texas and would not be happening there. like they are utilizing in other states. >> okay. so -- in the state of rhode island which i think -- my home state which is pretty controlled by the democratic party, they didn't see too much outrage there when they did it. i think when you look at every poll that's ever come out, 70% to 80% of americans support this, so i think that somehow equate showing a photo i.d. which in most states is given -- free if there is an issue with the person's economic condition, then somehow requiring people to show the same type of thing had would be required to get government assistance and get on an airplane and try government building and is actually a common sense move to ensure we maintain the integrity -- >> the basic right of an american isn't to fly, is it? >> i don't understand your question. >> your basic american right in certain things is to be able to vote. >> i don't understand how -- entering a government building, getting government benefits, things like tha

be trusted to hold don middle-class taxes. take a listen. >> the middle class will pay less and people making a million or more will begin to contribute slightly more. >> there aren't enough rich people in small businesses to tax them for all their spending. the next time you hear that, watch out, middle class. the tax bill's coming to you. >> edward isaac, how does a voter make sense of this? what's the truth on taxes? >> well, that's one of the essential questions of the cam paint that's what the obama campaign is saying about this. but what the romney/ryan campaign says about the obama plan is they have not done anything to say where the spending would be cut, to say where they're going to be doing things to reduce the deficit, and that's going to fall on middle-class families so it's a question of philosophy here, whether you think there is enough and other things he says he'll do to cut spending in the budget to make up the money that would be lost in revenue from that 20% across the board tax cut or whether you believe that the plan that president obama is saying to say that there shoul

session is what to do about the fiscal cliff, this whammy, this triple whammy of tax hikes and defense cuts and social program cuts that are scheduled to take effect the first of the year. i talked to one democratic congressman, a leader last night, i ran into him at an event in suburban washington. he said, don't look for congress to do anything substantiative in that lame duck, however, they might push that deadline back, work out some kind of deal, push it back six months, and get some serious negotiations on what to do about that fiscal cliff, some time in the springtime. >> mike viqueira, thank you. >>> the spin machine is in full effect over those jobs numbers. first, president obama used his weekly address to tout that drop in unemployment numbers to 7.8. >> more americans are entering the workforce, more americans are getting jobs. >> but mitt romney on his weekly podcast this morning argued that it is just more proof that obama's policies had failed. >> we created fewer jobs in september than in august, and fewer jobs in august than in july. and we've lost over 600,000 manufac

want it take us back to deregulation, giving more tax breaks to the wealthiest americans. this is right in the wheel house of joe bbiden. the fact that they're down playing the fact of how much debate experience paul ryan has is just window dressing. i've seen joe biden so many times on the stump in person, he stands up, he gets riled up. this will be a little bit more controlled and i think a lot more centered to the facts. but expect paul ryan to come out and lie just as much as mitt romney did last week. that's what i expect. >> the swing voters as well as the base, to they expect more about substance or style? >> first of all, no one in this country has made the case that vice president joe biden has done a bad job. the country knows who this man is. they know his background, they know he didn't go to the united states senate to be a millionaire. he went there to work on behalf of the people. so there's a lot of people that will expect a lot out of joe biden because they know who he is. but he'll be presenting the case that where we were and where we're going is great for america. a

president give critics an opening when he talked about a tax hike. let's listen. >> you know the phrase they always use? obama and biden want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars. guess what? yes, we do, in one regard. we want to let that $1 trillion tax cut expire so the middle class doesn't have to bear the burden of all the money going to the super-wealthy. >> does the vice president's style create a risk for the democratic ticket? >> he does. you know, it's something that they've been watching with joe biden for years, but joe biden has been preparing for an entire week. by thursday when the debate happens, he will have spent almost a week at his home in wilmington preparing. and when he is prepared, he is much better in that he doesn't make those same gaffes. when he nose what it is that he needs to say and he's not going off the cuff in this style, he does better. >> on thursday, joe biden went aggressively after governor romney on taxes. let's take a look at that. >> you just never know what game or what position governor romney's going to come with. you know, the centerpiece of

week with payroll tax. for a baby boomer that's about $60,000 before they retire. for millenniums, it's going to be even worse. these are real costs at the kitchen table. and obviously as newt gri noted, romney's plan is daz 5 trillion tax plan. it is heavily weighted towards the top. i think voters are smarter than mitt romney thinks and i think they're going to want to know the real facts. >> let's talk about virginia specifically here. this is a state where, where the race is extremely tight right now. the latest nbc news/"wall street journal," marist college poll showing 48% of likely voters supporting the president, 46% supporting governor romney. that's a virtual tie there. you can also see that governor romney gained two points from september. the president lost one. you are an expert of sorts on virginia politics. what does the president have to do to regain momentum in the commonwealth? >> well, i think he's got to keep focusing on what this means at the kitchen table in virginia. his plan is good for the middle class, romney raises taxes on the middle class. for current seni

is this all comes back to jobs. if we don't have people working and paying taxes, you can't fund the entitlement programs. if we f we reform them, you can't fund them if people aren't getting back to work. under governor rick scott, over 150,000 jobs created in the state of florida. >> let me address that. >> go ahead. >> i just want to address the medicare question, because it is critically important to florida. we have the largest number of medicare recipients in the country. the romney/ryan plan wants to change medicare as we know it. they want to create a voucher program. that's not what floridians want. and i think that is what we're seeing out there every day when we're out there talking to folks. they don't want what romney is trying to sell them on medicare. >> scott, quickly, one more question. how do you think president obama can court the moderate vote in florida? >> well, the president has been courting the moderate vote in florida for four years, frankly. he has been talking to folks about growing the middle class, about tax cuts for middle class, about really expand

was exposed for lying on the tax plan. he was exposed for lying on medicare. he was exposed to somebody that wants to privatize social security. he was exposed as a ticket that is politicalizing a tragedy in the middle east. the vice president called him out. i was so proud of him. >> some are saying the one weak point was the response to the initial question on libya. >> they sent the u.n. ambassador out to say this is because of a protest and youtube video. >> that is exactly what we were told by intelligence community. >> by who? >> the intelligence community told us that as they learned more facts about exactly what happened. they changed their assessment. >> joe scarborough this morning, as well as in "the daily standard," they said this that biden throws the intelligence community under the bus. what's your thought here? was the vice president not aware of the congressional testimony that happened on tuesday? the full tick tock that had come out? it didn't sync with his answer, necessarily. >> i think there will be more to be said on this today. i'm not going to prejudge what migh

additional tax cuts. 120,000 families throughout the country averaging $8 million a year will receive tax cuts from the romney plan. that is not good for the average virginian. the average virginian wants to send their kid to school here in virginia like odu campus, where i was just at. they need pell grants. and the romney/ryan plan will gut the pell grants to the expense of let's give the wealthy additional tax cuts. the virginians are rejecting the double down on trickle-down economics. >> voter registration deadline on monday. how important is turnout going to be? is it going to come down in virginia at least to at least turning out the base? >> it's all going to be -- >> it won't be about the base. >> it will be. >> brian, go ahead. >> it's going to be about the suburbs of washington, d.c. prince william, loudoun counties and hampden roads. that's where we're going to be watching the election returns, the suburbs of washington and hampden roads. >> and you both agree on that, right, brian? it's all going to come down to northern virginia. >> but it's -- i'm so proud to be a member of

with regards to abortion. it does seem unusual, blake. >> and it's not just abortion. >> he said tax policy, dodd franks immigration. there were five essentially flip-flops in one week. you know, it's not unusual for politicians to do that, but in one week five is a lot. >> is the campaign depending on the short attention span? >> i think it's one or two other things. one, i think they saw the positions that romney took in the primary may have been necessary to get the republicans which were really far to the right. i think they realized one month out this wasn't working and they had to do something different. the other thing is bill clinton had aurjed the campaign not go after the flip-flopping but to paint him more as a conservative, the idea being that if voters think that he's a flip-flopper, they may not be so worried about his positions because, well, you know, he may not mean what he says. >> he's hunkering down to prepare for the campaign. >> when you have 20 something days ahead, time is running against you. do we put him out in key battleground states or prepare him for the bigges

wants you to have pain today for someone else's tax gains. it's a hard case to make now. >> all right, so your book, though, examines the winners, the losers of the last 60 years of presidential campaigns. at this point in time, what are your predictions for what we see coming up next month? >> well, i see now -- romney did more than i thought he could in the first debate. his big job was to get people to say maybe there's more to him than i thought, and he immediately brought back the uncomfortable republicans, but he also opened everybody else's eyes. and it wasn't just the untruths he may have told. he also said some truths that are very powerful, and one of them was i can work with democrats and i've proved that in massachusetts and you can't work with republicans. now, there's a reason, there's a difference between flexible democrats and rigid republicans, but he has to find a way to make the case that he can keep and get more done than mitt romney, and that mitt romney is really the original release or release two, not the new mitt romney who's rewritten his past. >> uc san dieg
